Yep, what else is new? The Black Market is the Black Market. b-f-d! Been around forever, too. Where do you get your weed? I worked overseas for one year during 1994. I was in the Persian Gulf, in Qatar. 100 per cent of the Software, and 100 per cent of the Videos and Albums were illegal and/or bogus copies. You couldn't find anything other than bootleg. You'd rent the video, and in the middle of it, you'd always see a human silhouette here and there get up and move across the screen. What else is new? People in India are selling their organs too. I'd like to think etree has the right idea. How about the Dead?

I'm guilty of not having read a thing on settlements, wills, copyrights, ownerships, and the likes regarding the GD family and their estates. I'd like to think many, if not most of us are music-lovers like the etree guys. Back when I saw the boys 25 times in '73, none of us were thinking about any of this crap. Oops, didn't mean to be bitter about it. I'm still as passionate about the boys now as I was back then. And when you become passionate about them -- 1st thing -- we want to share with everyone.

Just to clarify.....

Folks here don't call deadhook "the other place" because it's a secret.

It is because there is general disdain over the way that site is moderated. With an iron-fist wrapped in troll-fuzz, imo.

Whether anybody agrees w/ that opinion of DH, I don't know. But I am 99% certain that the other place was never intended to be code for "where the cool kids are". We're here.

Get it straight!:)

Hey Rob--serious question: have you seen the recent N Young DVD in Nashville (ie, just before his life saving surg)? I was somewhat disappointed in the songs he had written of late...love him, and know you do so just curious as to your take on it...not sure if I am over-reacting? Anyhowse, let me know.

WT - apologies for being so tardy in responding. I presume you mean the Jonathan Demme Heart of Gold dvd? Is so, then yes I tend to skip to the older songs when watching it. I'm very glad that Neil is still out there, still performing and giving it all he's got but hand on heart I haven't found much that he's put out since Harvest Moon that I'd call an essential purchase.

Of course I don't mind at all if he carries on performing and reissuing the old stuff. After all, the Grateful Dead were pretty much a spent force creatively post-1977 and Terrapin Station, but it was still worth hearing them play a few of the old songs now and then!

Jerry Garcia, 1967: "What we're thinking about is a peaceful planet. We're not thinking of anything else. We're not thinking about any kind of power. We're not thinking about any of those kinds of struggles. We're not thinking about revolution or war or any of that. We would all like to be able to live an uncluttered life, a simple life, a good life and think about moving the whole human race ahead a step."

Joel Selvin: "The music changed just immediately. I cannot explain to you what it's like to be in a crowd of 5,000 people on LSD with the Grateful Dead, also on LSD, leading the crowd through a series of improvisations. Before that, rock and roll songs were three minutes, period, paragraph, we're out of here."

CBS reporter Harry Reasoner gets schooled about "hippies" and how war isn't the answer in this timeless, classic interview with the Boys "just growing up," in 1967. Reasoner goes on to exploit all of us as wasteful, no-gooders, drug-using, HIPPIES!

So why and what-the-fuck is being branded here, or perhaps rebranded? We get censored like cattle here if we dare say anything about how to pull VBRs of SBDs out of your cache... or maybe just right-click the damn thing. Yet re-branding and profiteering for illegal war abounds. I must not only be an old dinosaur, but a useless 420-using hippie caveman too.

*** Listen to Reasoner describing us hippies "didn't want much but 'on our own terms' and says it appears to be "style without content." "They object to the ills which beset society... war, social hatreds, money-grubbing spiritual wastes, but their remedy is to withdraw into private satisfactions... and the greatest waste of all."

believe me, you are not alone dead-head monte...

I wonder at times if this "dinosuar" thinking is based on aging or if there really is something bad going on here in terms of capitalism and the BIG historical picture. After a show or two thinking about it, I do believe aging and the "it was so much better back in my day" thought process clouds my vision to a degree but overall there does seem to be enough "evidence" about the BIG picture of capitalism changing to make me sit back and take notice. The question becomes what to do, what to do?

Not sure if it was marx or not, but someone wrote: "zombies don't revolt..." and zombies are what capitalism and commercialism has turned the masses into...

(ok, I am waiting for the youtube link for a zombie revolution movie...)

Joel Selvin: That might be the best thing I have seen written by the guy in ten years of reading him.

You guys can all kick my butt and vote to boot me off here anytime... but here goes anyway.

what have we learned? my post above is 1967. oh yeah, Viet Nam War: 3 million, maybe 4 million Vietnamese killed. Chemical weapons -- agent orange, white phosphorus incindiaries. Oh, and nearly 60,000 of our brothers killed, scores of thousands and thousands wounded and maimed. We hippies rebelled, and grew up with the Grateful Dead, and visa-versa. Together, we ended the useless fucking war bullshit. which was also based on a lie -- the Gulf of Tonkin Incident.

Much bigger lies got us into this illegal war and occupation in Iraq -- not just 100 per cent lies, but crap based on fear tactics. We fools fell for it. And the fucking press -- the same scumbag 5 or 6 mega-corporations that own all the radio stations, tv stations, cable channels, newschannels, newspapers and magazines, and the INTERNET too -- what did "they do?" Cheerleading and drum-beating for war! If you're not on-board or up-to-speed, you must watch or read BUYING THE WAR by Bill Moyers.

first-things-first: thanks for the set-me-up, veblen. Here's where you all can give me the boot. I'm gonna dive off the cliff now. Back in the day, the Vietnamese couldn't make a video and post it on the Internet. But we did have some press covering the war. Now look at the press. They stopped covering Iraq war a long time ago. But this Iraqi guy was able to make a video for us today and post it on the Internet. I'll remind you that we have 4000 US troops killed, scores of thousands injured and maimed. Over one million Iraqis killed, 4 million Iraqi refugees. Here's the youtube link for a zombie revolution movie.

"Its like having free cable for a few years and one day the guy comes and shuts it off (happened to me)."

That pretty much sums it up for me. Like most folks here I downloaded more than my share of shows- I can remember when the Archive’s Dead section only housed a handful of years – but by no means did I think it was going to last forever. So Speeding Arrow got shut down- nice little site, it was fun while it lasted, but so fucking what? Go back to trading the old fashioned way- no one’s keeping you from doing that. Or is some postage and a mailing list an unreasonable amount of effort to put forth? This whole thing has turned into a bunch of childish whining from people who want a lifetime guarantee of something for nothing, pure and simple. For all the free music the band has graciously allowed over the years, you'd think people would be grateful, but no- it's all about a sense of entitlement to more, a preposterous display of the same greed they're constantly accusing the "corporations", "capitalists" and “the man” of in their paranoid, outdated rants. It would be comical if the hypocrisy didn’t have such a stomach-turning stench. Oh the oppression!!!

Fucking toddlers. Get over it and go find a real life.

this was posted by Arb a long way back (date and source not stated)



Excerpt from Garcia interview:

Q: "The Grateful Dead got started at a time when rock bands were getting political. How do you feel about bringing politics into music?"

GARCIA: "That always used to scare me. It's tough when somebody takes a topical stand and makes their work political, even if the nature of the politics is to say 'give peace a chance,' it's like what you're doing is you're entering in the war game whether you like it or not. Your saying, 'give peace a chance' is like saying forget about war for a while, which is really like saying remember war. Back in the sixties when everybody was either on one side or the other, we [the GD] used to spend all our time avoiding being on one side or the other, because in that particular game there's only one side, and any energy that you give to the idea of war, is war, you know. And it's all war, and the best thing to do is to drop the whole notion. I mean fighting about war is just like fighting about [?], fighting about peace. A war is a war, a fight is a fight, and a struggle is a struggle, and if you put yourself in that position you're going to have to pay the dues, and so as far as I was concerned, it was always. That's why we never wrote any anti-war songs. It's because like why participate on any level, why give war any energy. Any energy you give it, glamorizes it; any energy you give it, even to say that it's a bad trip."

sweet m-n-s. outstanding reference! And I knew we could drag that Arbuthnot into the middle of this crap, along with the boys. Here's another one back at you all. From a review of mine, SBD. This was easy for me, since everyone knows I'm addicted to Sugaree. This 1983 show opens with an historic Sugaree. Below is a quote from my review.

"Smoothest and most buttoned-down Sugaree show-opener I've ever heard, that's available here on the LMA."

"Listen to Bobby, at 5:00 into Good Lovin'. The band goes into an interlude, and builds on it, reminiscent of Lovelight. "I wanna tell ya all about it now... cause we gotta make it work some how. I don't have to tell you what it's like these days. Sometimes you can't see shit through the smoke and the haze. You gotta have good lovin'." It goes on and builds brilliantly from there."

"Think about it. The band is standing up for our environment, and mother Earth: sustainable life on Earth, for all of us. They take this theme into the crescendo of Good Lovin', the closing tune for the concert. And then, they come back out and do a tasty encore with "Revolution"... standing shoulder-to-shoulder with John Lennon, so to speak. The Grateful Dead should be in the "Hall of Fame" not just for their music and concerts, but also for all their activism and civic stewardship over the years."

Perry: They heard by word-of-mouth. I mean, if you went to one of the great public events, like the rock dances, you would meet people, and they would say, "Hey man, you gotta come to the Haight, man, it's really beautiful there."

Peter Coyote: Kids were looking at pictures of kids like them, sitting on the stoops, cuppin' a joint, looking around for the cops, and saying, "Holy cow! People are living free in San Francisco." And they came out here to invent whatever that meant to them.

Joel Selvin: Everybody had a different entrance point. Some people came in because of the sexual liberation prospect. Some people came in because of the appeal of the music. Some people came in because they were angry and scared about the draft and the war. But once you were in that vortex, once you were in that swirling miasma of social and personal change, all the doors were open.

Never would have happened on Garcia's watch, I can guar-an-damn-tee you that. He had more respect for what he had created than to turn it into a cheap political advertisement.

I hope you aren't suggesting anyone should look to these bozos for voting tips. I listen to their music; I couldn’t care less they think about housing or healthcare.

Oh really you knew the guy well huh? I bet he also would have called you a fucking jerk off passed the spliff in the other direction and told you to get lost. Oh and he probably would have said the same about Rhino.

Uh, it's pretty well established what Garcia thought about shit like the "Deadheads for Obama" farce. Sorry you're not well read enough to know.

"It's not matter of being proud of the status quo, it's simply a matter of feeling that the whining over Rhino's moves has moved beyond understandable grumbling and gotten absurdly childish"

What a fucking hypocrite, you don't like people "whining" ( i.e. voicing there opinion) so you go ahead and do the same thing and "whine" about people whining. Get your head out of your ass. I cant think of anything more childish then to start blasting and name calling people when they complain about something grateful dead related on a grateful dead forum ( go figure right?).

stupid question -- am I allowed to post SBD setlists of GD here on this Forum, if I put "their files" on Media Fire? I did get these SHNs from gdlive-dot-com about 12 months ago. I'm uploading some serious shit right now...

I'll keep doing anything to be rebelling for the cause of sensible, sustainable life of Earth.

"Not sure if it was marx or not, but someone wrote: "zombies don't revolt..." and zombies are what capitalism and commercialism has turned the masses into..."

Sad, but true.. and being of the younger generation I get to look forward to many years (hopefully) of this cultural decaying phenomenon.


"I'll keep doing anything to be rebelling for the cause of sensible, sustainable life of Earth."

Keep up the good work, you have got my cosmic support!

well I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon myself and it sure would be nice to have a few positives to run with.

speaking of "positives": I am just waiting to see how great my att yahoo becomes once $$$soft takes over. Though I am preparing by cc'ing everything to a g-mail account for when the coming downfall hits.

so does this cultural decay that you mention mean we will begin looking at jerry lewis with the same respect as the french???

l-a-w, it is "I" who am ashamed at the decay -- and offer my support to you -- the younger generation. We're all on the same planet, nowhere left to go. I meant to say, sustainable life on Earth. That's where it's at. There is no "sideways" on this one. "This life" is either sustainable, or it isn't.

I am ashamed at the decay of this whole post, I am exposed to people with opinion's like skuzzle all the time who just can't shut up about how much they want other to people to shut up, and they way they state there opinion is disgusting.

So I figure if there's a place where I can get away from this shut ur damn mouth hippy pro capitalist BS is on a Grateful Dead forum( I know thats somewhat stereotypical). Obviously theres a couple of people who hang around here who just cant wait to show people how much they are that guy.

He sucked me in, no doubt, not that it's hard to do, as I am sure someone here has noticed. But when you argue with these type they sink you to there level and I always end up wishing I hadn't.

Seriously, hope my little hijack exchange over banana art wasn't offensive...reading it over now, I agree wholeheartedly that this thread was focused on some important issues and I detracted from that...

Sorry for the intrusion--wasn't meant to sidetrack a serious discussion...

They are very few things I find offensive when related to humor, and it is welcome anytime. I know by now from reading your posts that you are a man of integrity. I could find more offensive statements in one post of mine then I could probably find in all of yours.

actually I feel bad that I didn't provide a backing post since I overall agree with you; but simply put there are times when opinions can be changed and times when they can't and this appeared to be one of those "can't" times.

"you damn hippies are all the same..."

it is time to watch the southpark episode where cartman becomes a hippie exterminator..."die hippie, die"

[...]

giggling stoner hippies, drum circle hippies and the worst of all college-know-it-all hippies talking all about corporate fat cats and just putting capitalism down...

funny, but it does have some relevance to this thread...and the laugh is needed...

No, unless mediafire is totally noncommercial, that would not be acceptable, given this clear (very pre-Rhino) notice:
